Compact and flexible – these are the dominating keywords when it comes to machines for producing and developing parenterals in small batches.

Emser Pastilles

The German company Siemens & Co. packs its well-known “Emser pastilles” on a TLT 1400 thermoforming line from Bosch.

Bosch Packaging Technology maintains high growth rate

Sales planned to reach 1.5 billion euros by 2015
Bosch Packaging Technology continued growing faster than the packaging machinery industry in 2013, breaking the onebillion-euro sales mark for the first time. “We are exactly on track,” said Friedbert Klefenz, president of Bosch Packaging Technology. We increased our sales in fiscal 2013 from 914 million euros to 1.1 billion euros, a rise of 22 percent. Adjusted for consolidation effects, that equates to growth of 6.4 percent. Leaving aside exchange rate effects, internal growth at Packaging Technology reached ten percent. By comparison, figures from the German association of mechanical engineers (VDMA) put growth in the German packing machinery industry at only four percent. In 2013, we employed around 5,600 people at over 30 locations, 12 percent more than in the previous year. We will present details of its performance in 2013 at its annual press conference. Date: May 8, 2014, 10:00 a.m. at Interpack trade fair in Duesseldorf, Germany. (more…)
